It’s not just an ID card – the magnetic stripe on the back means your Miner Gold Card contains your library card, Miner Meals, Miner Bucks and the meal plans for the new, all-you-care-to-eat restaurant on campus.


For students, the Miner Gold Card provides access to campus services such as computer labs, tutoring centers, the Student Health Center, the University Counseling Center, the Student Recreation Center and the Sports Lottery.

Additionally, the Miner Gold Card is used for the semester print allocation, to disperse book loans, and to reserve and check the availability of laundry facilities in on-campus housing.

Those who require electronic access to doors or buildings on campus may use their Miner Gold Card for keyless entry once the Access Control Shop has processed the approved access form. Those with inner campus parking permits may use their Miner Gold Card to open the parking gates.
